About CMC

Claremont McKenna College consistently garners acclaim as one of the finest liberal arts colleges. This praise is due largely to its unique academics. While many liberal arts colleges strive for the broadest possible curriculum, Claremont McKenna maintains a focus on public policy, business and economics.

Despite these being CMC’s main focus, the school also offers programs in the humanities and natural sciences. These include unusual interdisciplinary majors like Philosophy & Public Affairs or Philosophy, Politics & Economics.

Claremont McKenna uses need-blind admissions. As a result, the school offers financial aid designed to meet all of its students’ demonstrated need.
CMC does not include loans in financial aid packages, replacing them instead with scholarships and grants. This means that you won’t need to pay back your need-based financial aid.

In addition to need-based aid, Claremont McKenna offers a few substantial merit scholarships for incoming freshmen. These include the McKenna Achievement Award, which is $10,000 per year, and the Seaver Leadership Award and Interdisciplinary Science Scholarship, both of which cover full tuition.
